IITs are known all over, for the excellence in technical education & its products-IITians, have made their mark in various professions, in India & all over the world
We, at IIT Delhi Alumni Association, feel that IITians-the technical cream of the nation- as many term them, need to give back to the society, besides excelling in their professions or earning good salaries or going abroad, etc etc.
The idea of deliberating on burning societal issues & finding out viable solutions to the same, has been mooted, to help the policy makers/executing agencies/various stake holders etc etc .That is the aim of `Social Out reach Programme` Committee of IIT Delhi Alumni Association., which has been formed this year.
Therefore during this year, we have taken conscious decision, to deliberate on three areas-
Safety on Roads
Corruption & Good City Governance.
Panel Discussions, Brain-Storming Session on role of value education in engg-curriculum & safety on roads have been held so far, to crystallize Action Plans.
Alumni of various IITs, ex- bureaucrats, policy makers, senior govt functionaries, academics, members of civil-society groups,students of IIT, participated in the same.
We seek active association/help/ participation of media & like-minded institutions/ individuals/ organisations, in our endeavour.
